We are using IIS 6.0 running under Window 2003 Server. We have 3 web sites running separetly using different application pools each. One of the web site is referring to .NET 1.1 and others are referring to .NET 2.0. However, at times error is thrown for w3wp.exe process and the error states that souce of the error is thrown from .NET 2.0. But the actual site running the code is referring to .NET 1.1. May I know how to resolve this issue?

While .NET 1.1 is being requested to use, even log shows that .NET 2.0 is being used.

Any help would greately appreciated.

It seems to me, on one of your site you are using both ASP.NET 1 and ASP.NET 2. Check the event logs on which directory your ASP.NET 1 website is showing ASP.NET 2 error. Create that directory as a virtual directory on server and move this directory to another application pool and after that problem should go away for you.

In addition to above solution I would suggest you to check if the Asp.Net 1.1 is set for your website which is showing error. You can set Asp.Net 1.1 from Right Click on VirtualDirectory created for website. Properties --> Under ASP.NET tab.
